Huis Ten Bosch (House in the Forest)4.6
Huis Ten Bosch, one of the largest theme parks in Japan, is a park recreating a Dutch town. The park is named after a residence of the Dutch Royal Family and means 'house in the forest'. In a picturesque, forested environment, there are a huge variety of activities that both adults and children can enjoy. Amusement rides, art galleries and hotel are also available.
This is a year-round spot with seasonal flowers blooming and various events taking place at different times of the year. Among the most popular are the tulip festival from February to April, the moss pink garden where 250,000 stumps blooming in April, and fascinating illumination in the winter months.

Place was awesome. Wonderful place to hang out and enjoy the scenery. Great place to take photos with family. There are several location at the park that allow you have your family/self picture taken by local camera controlled by your phone and it's "FREE"!.. Food are great and in a affordable price (at least for my budget). Food variety is insane, they have so much options that I firmly believe that they have what you are looking for. Will definitely be back to this place. We stayed Nikon Hotel which is 3 minutes walking distance.

Visited via Fukuoka. Worth a visit for half a day if nothing else to do, pricey for what it is. More of a nice pseudo-Dutch/European 'getaway', less of a theme park. Night time festivities look a lot more worthwhile, but would either need to drive or stay at a hotel on-site as last train to Fukuoka is at 4-5pm.
Disney Land or Universal Studios in Tokyo and Osaka more worthwhile despite longer queues.

It is one of the best attractions in Kyushu. There is nothing new for you if you stayed in or travelled Europe. But it was amazing for me to see the European cities in Japan. The rides were few and not very exceptional. If you stay at Huis Ten Bosch hotels, you can enjoy full infrastructures.

Felt just like a European city within Japan! Super cool and exciting can't wait to come back there was a bunch of places that we're open and operating normally. The light show was really cool along with the well maintained grounds.

Definitely a full day worthy trip. I went with the expectation of only spending a couple of hours and ended up closing down the park. Great shows, food and experience overall with a family friendly atmosphere.

Can you imagine that Huis Ten Bosch was originally a farmland that was reclaimed from the sea. The land was filled with sluge, so the first thing they had to do was to improve the soil quality. They dug the land, composted it, and planted carefully selected 700,000 plants. Now, there is an eco friendly, environmentally conscious theme park. The garbage from hotels and restaurants is converted to fetilizer that is used in the park, and the waste water from the park is clearler than the water in Omura Bay, which the park faces. The park depends on the solar power generation for its electric supply. Huis Ten Bosch is not mere a theme park but the town of our future.Read moreClose
